I’ve used this quote once before, but I love it so much that I’d thought I would again use it, and explore it a little more. The image of lying in wait to discover a secret as it allows itself to become understood takes my breath away.
Think about this question. Can you see yourself crouched in anticipation of a secret being exposed in front of your eyes?
If you can imagine yourself lying in wait for a piece of understanding being imparted to you, can you also imagine other people you know doing the same? Can you dive deeply enough into that imagination of yours to where everything disappears, except curiosity of course?
I often stare out windows letting my awareness zero in on a quiet thought being generated by my curiosity, being manufactured and rolled out slowly till I kinda sorta become the question itself. Make sense? I hope it does, because it is an amazing state to find oneself in.
Curiosity doesn’t even demand you have a question all formed and baked before it takes you on a journey into the depths of unknown secrets. Secrets will often revel themselves before a question is asked, even before the question is formed within your conscious awareness.
It’s the answer we get before we ask the question that makes us smile most. Maybe serendipity is tickling our awareness with a clue in hopes we’ll ask the question. What do you think? Could the answers take form in anticipation of us asking the questions? Is that even possible?
Take a moment each day to experience lying in wait for the answers to questions you’ve already asked, but more interestingly practice lying in wait for the answers to questions you’ve yet to ask. Ask out loud to no one in particular, What Is It or What Can It Be…
Once an answer gently slaps your awareness come back and share your experience…
